I’m joining up with Sheila at The Deliberate Reader for the 3rd volume of New on the Stacks. Here are some new finds that I’ve added to my stacks recently. Hope everyone is having a fantastic start to Spring!
How did I get it: Book review for Litfuse Publicity.
Why did I get it: I read the first book by this author, The Butterfly and the Violin (A Hidden Masterpiece Novel)last month and loved it! The Butterfly and the Violin tells two different love stories simultaneously, one occurring in the height of World War II and the other in present day. Drawn together across history by a haunting, but beautiful painting, both couples fight for love. I am so hoping that “A Sparrow in Terezin” is half as good!
The Last Child
How did I get it: I ordered the eBook from Amazon.
Why did I get it: This is the selection for book club this month and my mother says it’s good 🙂
Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder
How did I get it: I picked this up in the used book store – Ed McKay – after fawning over a copy signed by the author in the Smoky Mountain National Forest Visitor’s Center.
Why did I get it: My father taught me the importance of respecting and loving nature. I want to pass that legacy onto my own children. Some days getting outside is harder than others. I’m looking forward to reading this book and spending some time focusing on how beneficial the great outdoors can be for our kids.
Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting
How did I get it: Requested from the library.
Why did I get it: This book was listed in a book list for a class I’m taking called Mindful Based Stress Reduction. The class was suggested to me after several of my health issues listed high stress as a contributing/leading cause. This book is written by the creator of the course I’m taking, Jon Kabat-Zinn and I’m interested to learn how I can incorporate what I’m learning about mindfulness into my parenting.
Touch My Tears: Tales from the Trail of Tears
How did I get it: I ordered this from Amazon.
Why did I get it: This book was created by a group of Choctaw authors whose ancestors journeyed on the trail of tears. These are their memories, family histories, and recollections. One of the authors is in my mother’s water aerobics class. It’s a sign we should read it!
Wanna see what else the cool kids are reading??? Or better, yet, share some new books of your own?
